Yeah, I see some flaws in the design shown in the movie sequence, but it was originally used for computer reading not archiving as is our intention.  (I was told by a friend's uncle who worked in a government agency that the machine shown in the sequence was real.)

Lot of fiction more real than some versions of events 🙂

Is that up to us, though? I mean, I wouldn't want to set up a public mirror or torrent if it wasn't cool. Not sure who exactly is maintaining whtech these days, even. Guidance appreciated here.

@arcadeshopper is one with admin access.

You should have heard what he had to say about the movie "Sneakers." :)

You might have 'hold it' for 40 years, but that's a pretty good return on investment.

A boxed copy of the worst game ever made.  I think the only claim to fame for this game, "game of the year," was it being ported to just about everything with a CPU.

See, you've finally admitted that Zero Zap is not, in fact, the worst game ever made!  🤣

I have never made such a claim.  That would be all the haters out there.

That's within normal range for a nice, boxed copy.

It is, of course, but I see far too many listings in the triple-digits.

well prices can change for collectors when talking bout new sealed games or used boxed ones.
I know the seller of the ones with triple digits but he has lot of the TI stuff over the real normal price, my surprise is to see that he selling them anyway.

Of the romox carts, one of the rarer to find, is TYPO II. The range price for it is a bit higher for e boxed copy. but of course still not as the ones listed on ebay now.

Yes, Typo II is one of the rarer ones as a boxed copy.

 

The rarest one to find in a ROMOX box is Topper though. I've only seen that one sold once with a box (I bought it for $200 because of the box). The cartridge itself is a bit more common (I think I've seen a dozen or so of those sold over the years with the ROMOX label (not the much more common Navarone release)).

Good price on TI surplus chips. US dealer, premierchoicecomponents, promises parts come from authorized channels.

 

For instance, 74LS244N (PDIP-20). 55 pieces for 13.47. Works out to $0.33 after $5 shipping ($0.24 before)

New price at Digikey is $0.96 before shipping.

 

Octal buffer (used on all P-box cards)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/274268122780?hash=item3fdba76e9c:g:JKQAAOSwGAheRwgG

 

I found SN74ALS32DR in their auctions, and other good deals. ALS32 were the suspicious chips I had got Electronics Goldmine. (They said I was the first to report anything wrong.)

I buy from premierchoice components all the time. Every order comes with a valid certificate of origin--and they verify by decapping at least one chip from a group they buy to compare the mask to an original in their reference library. They are sometimes the best deal out there too, although due to the validation process, some of their stuff ends up on the higher end of normal. They are definitely one of my go-to, first choice eBay sellers.

Good recommendation then.

US $483.10 ????

Yeah, I watched that for its last couple of hours.  It was sitting at a healthy $235 for a while, then jumped up in the last few seconds.  I would like something like that for its portability, but holy crap.

One of the few odd bits of CorComp hardware I don't have one of--but I do have a TripleTech, so I do have the functionality.
